Poppy Day is May 7 in Millersport

MILLERSPORT – American Legion Auxiliary Unit 637 members will be distributing poppies downtown and in businesses starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 7.

Poppy Day is sponsored each year by the American Legion Auxiliary to remind Americans of the sacrifice of life and health made by the men and women of our armed forces. They are handmade by our disabled veterans and are never sold.

Contributions are devoted entirely to rehabilitation and child welfare efforts for veterans and their families.

Hanna Jewell, the daughter of Brian and Rhonda Jewell, is the 2011 Little Miss Poppy Queeen. She is in the fourth grade at Millersport Elementary School and a member of the Junior Auxiliary. She is eligible through her great grandfather Donald Jewell who served in World War II and is a life member of Post 637.

For more information about Poppy Day, call Poppy chair Carol Kitzmiller at 467-2234.
